HP Electronics has recently unveiled a new Chromebook in the US market called the Chromebook X2. The company is touting it as the ‘world’s first Chromebook Detachable’. That means the laptop can be used as a tablet if the display is detached from its dock. The pricing for the latest HP laptop starts at $599.99 (roughly Rs 39,000) in the US market.
The new Chromebook will be made available for purchase from June 10 in the USA; however, there is no mention of the pricing and availability of the new notebook in the international markets including India.
HP Chromebook X2: Specifications
The latest HP laptop comes with a 12.3-inch Quad HD display. The screen comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection on top. It runs on Chrome OS with support for Android apps. That means you can use your favourite Android apps on the device seamlessly. Under the chassis, there is 7th Generation Intel Core processors with up to 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
You can purchase the Chromebook X2 with up to 32GB of internal storage. There is an external storage option available on the device which can let you add up to 256GB of storage via microSD card. To enhance the sound experience, HP has offered a dual speakers setup which is powered by B&O Play technology.
The Chromebook X2 has a 13MP primary rear camera alongside a 5MP selfie shooter. The company has bundled 100GB of free Google Cloud storage with the laptop for a period of up to two years. The connectivity options include two USB Type-C ports, audio jacks, and a microSD card slot. Moreover, select models of the Chromebook X2 come bundled with an active pen.
To recall, Samsung was rumoured to revamp its Chromebook Pro series last year. The company introduced its Chromebook Pro and Chromebook Plus in early 2017. These laptops boasted rotating touchscreen displays; however, both missed out the backlight keyboard feature.
